Moon rabbit – what we’re reading

IMG_9137I picked this book up for the bargain price of 20p at a second hand book stall a few months back. I’d never seen or heard of the book before but in that brief flick through, something told me this would be a great addition to my daughters collection (and at 20p what could I lose?). The illustrations are charming, beautiful and pretty without being pink. I imagined reading it at bed time, to my little girl as she grows up. There isn’t too much text on each page either. Just the right amount, before Poppet decides to turn the page.IMG_9122Little rabbit loves living in the city but one night she looks up at the moon and begins to wonder if there is someone out there just like her. Someone she can have fun with. Then one night she meets brown rabbit in the park. The two rabbits become good friends and for a while, little rabbit forgets about her life in the city.

One night however, little rabbit sees her beautiful city glowing in the distance and becomes home sick. The next day she returns to the city and continues to enjoy living there. She is no longer lonely though as brown rabbit visits her in the city.

IMG_9120A really sweet story about friendship. Although I enjoy reading it to Poppet now at almost 12 months old, I’m sure it is one that will get more enjoyable as she grows up.

If you want more ideas for spring/Easter reads, have a look at my Easter gift guide, that I published on Tuesday or this great post from life and times of mummy Morkus has some more suggestions. I can also recommend some previous ‘what we’re reading’ choices such as Oh dear!, Animal homes and Farmyard hullabaloo. I’d love to hear your recommendations for spring reads in the comments.

This week I am linking up with Carie at Space for the butterflies. Please do pop other to her blog by clicking on the button below to link up what you’ve been reading with your children or to get some ideas.

This week we have read 6 new books. We had another trip to the library and picked up a few more books including a couple of great ones from Oliver Jeffers (I think I love these more than Poppet at the moment). As always you can find the full list of what we have read so far (and a brief review of each) on my pinterest board.

    Oh it’s beautiful – what a perfect bedtime story book, and a serous bargain too!

    The illustrations certainly look lovely and I love how the little rabbit is a modern rabbit, playing guitars and travelling in taxis. love your photos too where you show a child reading the book.
